Quick question: is there a specific thread I can embed a Vimeo video on and is appropriate to do so? We just finished clearing up the red tape holding our doc back, and I can show it publicly now.
Bryn, if you want feedback on a work-in-progress, you might get some response by posting it in the Mentoring Room (below the file attachment, there is an icon with a video player - if you click it, you have the option to enter the page URL for your Vimeo video). If you have a finished film, you can actually add it to your profile by clicking on the "Watch Films" and adding your film.
Will there be a change in the back-scroll possibilities? The list as it is now is perhaps good for some, but the old back-scroll option was dreamy and if that could be added again (leave the list too for the others who like it), great.

I'm with Jo-Anne on this request...
Another vote for the back scroll feature. It was my most essential tool of the d-word.
We are working on something doable. Most likely a button to jump you back a fixed number of posts.
no back scroll? jumping is so less wonderful... it doesn't help one find a post as easily where one had no clue how msny posts back it is.. but here's a hug to keep spirits bright.
i'm trying to post a Vimeo link in the Works in Progress topic, but i keep getting an error message which essentially says "The link you provided is not a proper video link..." I'm basically copying the URL from the browser, so I don't know what's going on... Help!
Nevermind. It's working now. Have no idea why it wasn't working before cuz I was doing the exact same thing. oh well.
Well trying to catch up here after a relatively long absence. Of course I went directly to the Parking Lot to catch up with 75 posts. But after I read them all, the counter said I still had 75 unread posts. I've noticed this with all the topics. Is there something I need to do to prove I read the posts?
You need to sign a form and send it in, Laura. We missed you, that's why.
On the other hand, we feel that there is a strange thing that does just what you reported. I guess we'll need Peter to look into it :)
It's been happening for me from time to time too.

Thank you Niam. I've missed you all too. Hope to re-emerge fully some time soon. It's been lonely. :-(

Which browser/version are you using?
For me it's Safari 8.0.8. Doesn't happen consistently but does happen from time to time.
I am using Mozilla Firefox and it happens from time to time, too!

Still not totally used to this new fangled D Word. Okay - so let say I'm all caught up on zero -- but I want to read back a few pages on a specific topic, so I can familiarize myself with some of the previous posts. They used to just be there and you could page back. So how do I get to them now?
At bottom of the page, you will two things - a drop down which says "Jump to..." which gives you different options to go back, forward, or to the Topics List. There is also a little triangle with the number 25 below it. Click that and it will take you to 25 posts back in the current topic.
And if you fancy jumping back more than 25 posts, you can change this in your settings accessed through the left hand navigation under "My D-Word". Mine is set to 50, for example.
Thank you. But so many options now - it requires me to think too much! I know, kvetch kvetch. I'm sure I'll get used to it and start to like it.
You don't have much choice! ;)
So since we are in a birthday celebratory kind of mood on our Sweet 16, curious to know what new features people are super thankful to have.
Someone asked me to change the Greeting on the Homepage :P

Favorite Topics at the top, Topics button to see everything else, Jump To (25), are my favorite features.
Maybe this has been discussed: A word turns red if it is misspelled, but there doesn't seem to be a way to see a suggestion for the correct spelling.
